Michael Nosko, VMD

Animal Medical Center

Meet Dr. Michael Nosko! Dr. Nosko has been practicing veterinary medicine for twenty-five years. He completed his undergraduate studies at University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown and earned his Veterinary Degree from the University of Pennsylvania. His fields of interest include surgery, weight management and geriatric and preventative care. When not caring for your pets, Dr. Nosko and his wife are usually enjoying the outdoors and taking care of the animals on their farm. The little blue-eyed beauty you see stealing the show would be Patty, Dr. Nosko’s eight-year-old Siamese kitty. When not romping with her various other housemates, Patty loves to spend her time seeking out comfy places to curl up and nap.
